Subject: Wonderful book, maddening reader
Cranford is one of the greatest English short novels ever penned. Its humour is altogether delightful, the characterisations are beautifully drawn, and the pace is much brisker than other novels of the 19th century. It is filled with charm and lovingly related domestic incident--a kind of Victorian precursor of the comic novels of E. F. Benson. Unfortunately the reader here gallops along at such breakneck speed that almost all the nuances of the humour are lost, often garbled. She reads so quickly that she often fails to distinguish between a "Miss" and a "Mrs." I had to follow along with a print copy and found that when I got a page turned, the reader was already two sentences ahead of me. I do hope that someone else will record this novel with the care and delicacy with which it should be treated.
